The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
— Aristotle

All art is at once surface and symbol. Those who go beneath the surface do so at their peril. Those who read the symbol do so at their peril. It is the spectator, and not life, that art really mirrors. Diversity of opinion about a work of art shows that the work is new, complex and vital.

—Oscar Wilde

UP Arts presents: Leo Haese Lunch Hour Concert Date: Thursday 18 May 2017, 12:40 Venue: Musaion Entrance free, everybody welcome. Need a break from your desk? Attend a lunch hour concert this Thursday, it’ll leave you refreshed and inspired. The popular group Cherry Pill will be performing at the Leo Haese Lunch Hour concert, Musaion, University of Pretoria. The name Cherry Pill is a metaphor for life – the sweet and joyful mix with the bitter moments to create a rich experience full of twists and turns. It is a band for sophisticated music lovers who appreciate music that tells a story. Based in Johannesburg, the Cherry Pill sound is a blend of musical styles ranging from acoustic folk to upbeat pop rock, with strong influences from classical and jazz music. Thoughtful lyrics and sweet vocal harmonies are underpinned by the soaring melodies of Kristel’s classically-trained violin playing and Rory’s blues and rock-infused guitar licks. See you there! Kind regards from the Lunch Hour Team.
